Hi list,

We have developed an extensive application where all (well most anyway) print 
output is generated using Reportlab. Now this is done on Linux, and to print 
the output, we use ghostscript to format the output for the printers. Now I 
get the following error from ghostscript when I try to render the PDF.

gs -q -dBATCH -dNOPAUSE -dSAFER -dQUIET -sDEVICE=ijs -sIjsServer=hpijs 
-sDeviceManufacturer="HEWLETT-PACKARD" -sDeviceModel="DESKJET 3820"

ESP Ghostscript 7.07.1: Unrecoverable error, exit code 1

I have tested ghostscript with this command with some of the examples of 
ghostscript and they worked correctly. So there is no problem with the 
installation of Ghostscript.

The generated PDF has been included. It can be displayed using acrobat reader 
without any problems. So there are a couple of possibilities:
1. The paragraphs have not been configured by me? (How can I find out where 
the error is made?)
2. The generated PDF is not valid

I hope someone can help me.....
